Art Bird by Mandy C

What I Used:

Tim Holtz ‘Staples’ stamp
Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Jet Black
White Pen

  • Take a 6 x 4 piece of white card .... and a flat paint brush. Brush on different colours of the Dylusions ink sprays.  I’ve added some ink to a dabber bottle (like the Distress Stains) and splodged a big ink blot in the upper left corner.
  • Stamp the ART bird onto white card, cut and colour with watercolours. 
  • Stamp the bird with the sign from the Graphic 45 set and cut out and colour. I’ve used mica paint for this.
  • Stamp the eye from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe set into the centre of the ‘splodge’.
  • Stamp the ‘staples’ around the edge of the card.
  • Adhere the ART bird first and then the crow.
  • Stamp/print the word ART and add to the card.
  • Edge the art bird image with pen or watercolour pencil.
  • Add some bling.
  • Highlight with white pen.



  1. Cool card! You use these quirky Lost Coast stamps beautifully, Mandy. I can never make them work for me.

  2. Loving those gorgeous bold colours and fab design. xx
